This short article is for all LED flexible strip light customers, new as well as experienced. After reading, new buyers of LED strips will recognize the aspects that identify the strip’s quality and have the ability to buy the correct LED strip lights for their projects.
What are LED strip lights?
LED strip lights, likewise referred to as LED tape lights, are developed by soldering surface mounted device( SMD) LEDs and various other electric parts onto Flexible print circuit( FPC) boards. They generate strip-shaped lights when attached to power supply. So did they obtain the name as LED strip lights.
Significant components of a LED light strip consist of: SMD LEDs, FPC board, resistors, as well as 3M double side adhesive tape.
How do LED strip lights work?
Regarding white LED strip lights or other single color strip lights, they need to be attached to a power supply of appropriate voltage. Link the power supply to house electrical system and also the LEDs will certainly generate lights. You can optionally set up an LED dimmer for the white strip or solitary colored strip light to change the brightness degree.
If RGB, RGBW, CCT adjustable white LED strips are made use of, an LED controller is necessary for you to position in between LED strip light and power supply.

Top 9 considertions before buying LED strip lights
– All comprehensive overview of LED strip light buying
1. The color as well as color temperature you need.
If you need mount white strip lights, the color temperature of white lights must be thought about.
2400K is close to orange or brownish-yellow. It is very warm lights with reddish as well as yellow-colored tone.
2700K is similar to light color that incandescent lamps produce. It is a cozy and soothing lighting.
3000K appears like the light of halogen lamps. It is a little brighter than 2700K, as well as places a slightly yellow-colored or reddish tone on objects brightened. 2400K, 2700K, and also 3000K are typically referred to as warm white.
4000K likewise called neutral white, is a whiter white than 2700K or 3000K. It is generally made use of in workplace and commercial illumination
6500K additionally called daylight white or cool white, is the brightest pure white. It resembles the natural sunshine of a sunny day. Institution, work as well as manufacturing setting extensively use 6500K strip lights to enhance efficiency. 6500K light is an essential element for luxury modern hotels, restaurants and also clubs.
CCT adjustable white LED strip lights, likewise called tunable white LED strip lights, can create lights with color temperatures from 2700K to 6500K. They are made by utilizing both warm white as well as cool white LEDs on the exact same FPC board. The lights of warm white and cool white LEDs are combined to various levels of brightness to create lighting of diverse color temperatures.
If colored lights is favored, you have the selection of single color strip lights such as red, green, blue, or UV black. Or you can select multicolor RGB LED strips or RGBW LED strips.
2. Indoor or exterior waterproof LED strip lights.
For interior applications, please choose IP20 interior LED strip lights. For outside or semi-outdoor usage, please choose waterproof LED strips with IP65 or above. Water-proof LED strips are additionally great for interior usage, as their outdoors layer of waterproof tubes can prevent electric parts from dust and effect.
3. LED strip lights operate 2 versions of Low voltage: 12VDC or 24VDC.
Many traditional customers will like 12V LED strip because they are used to 12VDC LED strips and also because 12V power supply or power adapters can be more commonly found on the market.
In addition, the cuttable section of 12V light strips is half of that for 24V. Common cuttable section of 12V LED strip lights is one inch, while for 24V LED strip lights, it is two inches. The smaller cuttable section means it is easier to cut and adjust LED light strips to the desired accurate length for installation.
A lot of vehicles, Recreational vehicles, boats as well as luxury yachts have 12V power system aboard. So, 12V LED strip lights are the only choice.
A few years ago, 12V LED strip lights are most popular, while recent years, 24VDC LED strips are becoming more and more popular.
Compared to 12V LED strip lights, what advantages do 24V LED strips have? 24V LED strip lights operate with half current as 12V LED strips, which is established by power, current, and voltage. It means under same wattage, the current on 12V strip is twice as on 24V strip. So lifetime for 24V strip is longer than 12V strip.
Besides, there are a lot of product variations for 24V than 12V. We can make it 5/6/7/8/9 per series. So customers will have more choices.
If a project needs continuous and long installation of LED strips, 24V version can be better. The factor is a frequently recognized issue “voltage drop”. Voltage drop is the sensation that electric voltage lowers along the light strip because the electric resistance is unpreventable down the road of the strip.
Due to voltage drop, the light at the starting part of a lengthy LED light strip will be brighter than that at the end of strip. The voltage drop is smaller sized for a 24V LED strip than for a 12V LED strip. Several 24V LED strips can run continuously up to 10 meters (around 32 feet) without recognizable brightness decline from the strip beginning to finish.
Constant Current LED strip lights can solve the voltage drop problem, to particular level. But such LED strip lights are with higher prices than normal 12V or 24V LED strips, because they have extra electrical circuit components, and also need longer time for manufacturing. Such LED strip can run continuously up to 50meters(around 160 feet) with one power supply.
Currently most Unitop LED strips are 24VDC, we also have 12VDC for choice. It depends on different customers requirements. You can contact us freely if you have any requests.
Brightness is an essential variable for selecting LED strip lights. Light creates ambience through its brightness and also colors. In light science, brightness is measured by lumens. It is shown in the value of lumens.
What is lumen?
Lumen. Lumen is the measure unit for the overall quality of noticeable light released during a Unit of time. It shows the brightness level of the light generated by the light source. Generally, electricians utilize foot-candle as the measure to explain the light intensity, as is the traditional Unit used in US. A foot-candle equates to one lumen per square foot. The brightness level approximately equals to the light that is one foot from a typical wax candle.
If you need brighter LED strip lights, you will certainly pick strip light that is marked with higher lumens per unit length. Please beware that various suppliers might use various brightness marks.
For example, one strip is marked as “240 lumens/ft”, one more significant mark as “700 lumens/meter”. We can not say that the second strip is brighter than the first, due to the fact that the length units are different.
Unit conversion is essential for meaningful contrast. Say we convert the brightness mark of the very first strip to lumens/meter. 1 meter equates to 3.28 feet. The very first LED strip would certainly be 240 lumens/ft * 3.28 = 787.2 lumens/meter. Now we learn that actually the first strip is brighter than the 2nd one.
Luminous efficacy. Luminous efficacy is one more crucial element relating to brightness. It is the ratio of the light strip’s lumen value to its power. By this meaning, we can see that the proportion determines the light strip’s efficacy of emitting light when using one watt of power.
When consuming the same amount of wattage, an LED light strip with greater luminous efficacy can produce more lumens of light. To put it from another point of view, when creating the same brightness, an LED strip light with greater luminous efficacy consumes much less power, saving much more expense.
Relationship between brightness and also wattage. The brightness of an LED light strip is associated to its electrical power, the power an LED strip eats. Similar to light bulbs, the higher power level a light strip has, the brighter light it creates.
The number of lumens do I require for a space?
When mounting LED strip lights for houses, we often experience the questions: how many lumens do I need for the room? How many lumens per square foot should be planned to illuminate the areas ideally and pleasantly?
To accomplish ideal illumination for various areas, you can check below table as a general advice:
Applications The number of lms/sf
Bedroom illumination 10-20 lms/sf
Stair and also hallway lights 10-30 lms/sf
Under cabinet lighting 20-40 lms/sf
Under counter illumination 20-40 lms/sf
Kitchen island toe-kick lighting 20-50 lms/sf
Washroom lights 50-70 lms/sf
Cooking area counter top lights 60-80 lms/sf
5. The number of LEDs, LED density, and LED types.
LED density: the meaning of the quantity of LEDs on a light strip
The number of the LEDs inhabited on a light strip has meaning just when it is watched by the size of the strip, e.g., the number of LEDs per light strip. To be a lot more precise, LED strip lights need to be marked for the number of LEDs per meter or the amount of LEDs per foot. It is commonly referred to as the LED density of a strip light.
LED Density shows the distance of one LED from the next, indicated by the LED amount per meter or per foot, such as 60 LEDs/M, 120 LEDs/M, 18 LEDs/foot, or 36 LEDs/foot.
How does LED density influence the brightness of LED strip lights?
Generally, all various other elements comparable, a higher density LED strip is brighter than a lower one. This is due to the fact that there are more LEDs producing light on the higher density LED strip. By comparable variables we mean the exact same type of LEDs, the very same existing drawn by the LED strips, etc.
Light spot: How does LED density influence light distribution?
An usual sensation of LED strip is that for certain jobs, you can plainly see the light areas or light dots on the diffuser of a light strip fixture. This is so called “light spot” in light circulation. Perfect distribution would certainly imply no light spot.
Light spot is impacted by 2 variables: the distance range in between LED and also diffuser, and also the range in between LEDs.
Distance Range in between LED and also diffuser.
How the range between LED as well as diffuser impacts light spot can be recognized this way. If you stand 10 meters away from a wall surface as well as project a flashlight onto the wall surface, you’ll see the entire wall area is lighted, we consider the light circulation good.
As you relocate closer to the wall surface, the lighted area becomes smaller and also smaller sized till the factor it reaches to the exact same size of the flashlight head. Right now the light distribution is bad as a result of the light spot is really noticable. This character is global to a spot resource of light.
Same as the flashlight, LED is a place resource of light. So if the light spot is an issue, we can select to enhance the range in between LED as well as diffuser. If we are making use of aluminum profiles to LED installing, we can pick deeper aluminum profiles so that the distance in between LED and the diffuser is longer.
Distance in between two surrounding LEDs.
On the other hand, the shorter the range between 2 surrounding LEDs is, the higher the density of LEDs on a light strip, the far better the light circulation of the LED strip light. It is because the shorter the range is, the easier for the LEDs to cover each other’s blind spots.
There is a situation when the range in between LED and also diffuser can’t be much longer any more due to restriction on installation area. Under this condition, in order to get less light spot or much better light distribution, strip lights with higher density LEDs are the perfect solution.
Some versions of our LED strip lights are specifically made to accomplish perfect light circulation. These light strips come with high density LEDs. Even made use of in shadow aluminum profile, they present extremely wonderful light distribution without any light spot. At the very same time the light strip creates higher lumen with lower current, produces less heat, and also longer life time.
The type of SMD LED package is often described by a number, such as 3538, 2835, 5050, and 2216. The number is in fact the LED’s dimensions in size.
3528: The dimension of a 3528 LED is 3.5 mm x 2.8 mm, height is 1.9 mm. Each LED usually has the power of 0.06 W. They can be made to generate white light, or colored light.
2835: The dimension of a 2835 LED is 2.8 mm x 3.5 mm, height is 0.7 mm. Each LED normally has the power of 0.1 W, 0.2 W, or 0.5 W. They likewise can be made to create white light, or colored light.
5050: The dimension of a 5050 LED is 5.0 mm x 5.0 mm, height is 1.6 mm. Each LED generally has the power of 0.2 W. They can be made to generate white light, colored light, RGB, or RGBW.
2216: The dimension of a 2216 LED is 2.2 mm x 1.6 mm, height is 0.6 mm. Each LED generally has the power of 0.06 W, 0.15 W, or 0.2 W. They are made to produce white light.
In conclusion, 2835 LED has larger heat dissipation area as well as less height, and is best to be made use of to make white led strips. 5050 LED has larger light sending out surface area as well as three chips within, and also is extensively utilized to make white and colored strip lights.
2216 LED has the smallest and ultra slim body, making it best to be utilized to make high efficiency LED strip lights, such as CCT adjustable white LED strip lights. It is likewise the very best LEDs to make ultra slim light strips to fit little grooves. Slim light strips quickly fit into aluminum profiles of small dimension, and produce lights with great circulation without light spots.
6. CRI or color rendering index.
CRI is the measure that indicates the light source’s capability to make the original colors of objects lighted by the light source. The original color is defined by the color when the item is brightened by sunshine.
The closer the color of an object rendered by a source of light is to the color of the same things under sunshine, the greater CRI the source of light has. CRI has a value variety ranging from 0 to 100. Necessarily, sunlight has the perfect CRI with the value of 100.
Keep in mind: The higher the CRI value is, the far better the top quality of a source of light in the feeling of its capacity to provide colors. This is essential to lighting applications where color is important.
For instance, we take a look at the fruit and vegetables area where a supermarket sells vegetables as well as fruits. When light strips with high CRI are used, the produces appear in all-natural as well as saturated colors, looking juicy, glossy and fresher. Thus, they are apparently a lot more eye-catching to clients.
Exact same with fresh meat. Under light strip of high CRI, the meat is in purple red that looks fresher. If CRI is less than 80, the colors of the item illuminated are distorted in such method as if they were covered with a grey veil. The things looks gloss-lacking as well as dull.
From the viewpoint of protecting vision of human eyes, light strips planned to be used long time need to have CRI greater than 80. Light with CRI lower than 80 will certainly influence human eyes’ capacity to distinguish colors. Very long time exposure to light with CRI less than 80 may trigger various vision problems.
All of our LED strip lights have CRI 90+. For your specialist demands, we additionally bring LED strip lights with CRI 98+.
7. Length as well as width.
The length of our LED light strip is typically 5 meters(16.4 feet) per reel. Why LED strips are made into 5M? It is because of the voltage drop along LED strip. For a 12V LED strip light, if it is longer than 5M or 16.4 FEET, the LEDs on the strip end will look rather lower in brightness.
When purchasing LED strips, take note of the length noted by suppliers or producers. Some sellers sell strip lights in 2M or 3M. Know that with the money you paid, how long the light strip you are obtaining.
For the LED strip’s width, normally the choices are 5mm, 8mm, 10mm as well as 12mm. The 5mm ultra slim version is developed to meet the needs of special lighting projects.
8. Choose LED strip power supply.
Should I pick power adapter or switch power supply?
1. Power adapter is much easier to set up. What you need to do is just plug the power adapter into LED light strip. Normally a power adapter can power one to two LED strips, suitable for small projects.
2. For medium to large installment, pick professional trademark name power supply. LED Power supplies typically can provide power for a lot of strip lights.
3. Flicker. Quality power adapters or power supplies provide steady power and cause no flicker for LED strip lights. Substandard power supplies can create noticeable or unseen flicker. Sometimes, you can make the option based on if your eyes feel good when looking at LED flex.
An easy method to check flickering is to put your mobile phone on video camera mode as well as check out the strip lighting on your mobile display. Certain flickers can be unnoticeable to nude eyes. Long time exposure to LED lights with undetectable flickers will cause vision problems, or even make your head feel painful.
5. Good quality power supplies like MeanWell, and also top quality power adapters can provide full suggested current for continual operation. Substandard power suppliers give less current than indicated. When taken into continual operation, bad quality power supplies will certainly become very hot, and also have problem very shortly.
6. Voltage as well as Power of LED strip power supplies
Voltage. LED strip power supplies must offer proper voltage for strip lights. 12V LED strips should utilize 12V power supplies, 24V LED strips must utilize 24V power supply.
Power. Power supply should be able to offer adequate power for the LED strips. The power or wattage needed is established by the wattage of the strip lights to be installed. Strip lights electrical power computation formula: Power = LED strip Size x wattage/meter. For example, you are installing a 5 m LED strip with 16W/m. The overall power = 5 m x 16W/m = 80W.
Then we determine the power level of power supply required. Policy is that power supply must not be used to its full ability, because full load will certainly create excessive heat and shorter lifetime for the power supply. 20% more capacity is the best.
For instance, for above installation, the power supply ought to be: (1 +20%) x 80W = 96 W. There is no such a power supply with this precise electrical power of outcome. We choose the following level of result, which is 100W. A power supply with higher than required will not damage LED strip lights. It will provide only needed power for the LED strips.
Quality is the outcome of numerous variables combined.
1. Quality materials. Quality raw materials are the structure for high quality LED strip lights. They consist of top quality LED, double-sided red copper FPC board, 3M double-side tape, waterproof material etc. Specific product top quality can be inspected by the naked eyes, such as FPC board.
2. Good performance. Quality materials can not guarantee great performance of strip lights, because layout and also production processes are likewise very crucial. The efficiency of strip light can be told by sight of naked eyes, by sensation of hands, or by inspection by equipment.
Three performance features are discussed:
Color temperature precision and uniformity. Quality strip lights create lights with excellent accuracy and also consistency for color temperature. Brand name LEDs can guarantee excellent accuracy as well as consistency of lights.
Heat management performance. It describes how well the heat generated during LED strip operation is taken care of. Normally, it connects to the circuit style for the LED strips, along with the product selected. LED aluminum profile is the most popuplar accessory to assist achieve the most effective heat administration efficiency for LED strip light.
Color making index( CRI). To be good for eyes, an LED light strip should have at least CRI 80+.
3. UL/CE certified. Every item of our LED strip lights is UL/CE accredited in the classification of low voltage luminaire.
4. Good before and after sales customer service. We offer 3-year warranty for all our LED strip light products.
What are the most effective LED strip lights? Good quality LED strip light vs. Bad quality LED strips.
1. LED (additionally described as LED package).
LED is one of the most vital part to make the very best LED strip lights. The high quality of LEDs has direct and also decisive influence on LED strips. Significant elements of an LED include: LED chips, brace, lead wire, phosphor as well as package glue.
LED chips. LED chips are the vital component for LED package. It is the component that really gives off light. Brand and also dimension of the chip can mostly speak out its quality level. LED chips from Taiwan Epistar are big, and also they send out light with great color precision and consistency.
Generally, LED chips of bigger dimension will certainly have more powerful performance, and also create higher brightness light. Their heat dissipation is better also.
LED’s lifespan is positively associated with heat dissipation ability. In order to reduced cost, some suppliers choose to utilize little chips, which creates much shorter lifetime as well as much less lumens of LEDs. Obviously their LED’s cost is lower.
Brace bracket. Finest LEDs make use of red copper silver-plated support bracket. The silver plate need to be at least 60 uin thick so that the brace has less resistance and much better conductivity to rapid dissipate the warmth created within LED. Bad quality LEDs make use of iron brace as substitute, which is prone to rust and has low heat dissipation function.
Exactly how to tell if an LED uses red copper silver-plated brace? A very easy means is to divide the LED in the middle as well as see if there is red color copper inside.
Bond wire. Quality bond wire makes use of 99.99% purity of gold wire, 1.0 mil gauge. Gold wire has the very best score of ductility and also pliability, which guarantee that under the adhesive’s inner anxiety force, the bond wire will certainly extend well without getting damaged. Gold is pricey. In order to gain cost advantage in competition, some makers use substandard bond wire, such as copper, which reduces conductivity, fast decay and also more heat for LEDs.
Package glue. Highest glue has a high refractive index, which considerably enhances LED’s lumens. package glue should create strong bond with support bracket, be damp resistant and also anti-cracking, and also does not transform yellowish.
Phosphor. Phosphor is a vital component for LEDs. Advanced phosphors include indium gallium nitride (InGaN) and aluminum gallium indium phosphide. Phosphor’s characters have direct influence on white LED’s high quality, such as brightness, color temperature level, CRI, and also chromaticity coordinates. Great phosphor needs to have concentrated spectra, slow-moving degeneration in illumination, and also high temperature resistant.
In summary, LEDs of a batch( bin) shall emit light with the same level of brightness as well as the very same color temperature, providing precision and consistency. If the LEDs can not achieve these performances, they are very bad in quality level.
An approach to inspect LED’s quality is to apply 6-8V DC to an LED strip light. If every LED sends out minor light in reduced brightness, and also the brightness degrees of all LEDs on the strip are the same, the LEDs are taken into consideration having wonderful uniformity. If the brightness of the LEDs are different, some are brighter, some are dark, then we can say the LEDs are of poor quality.
Specifically for 5050 LEDs with 3 color chips within, we can tune RGB controller to check three chips separately. Every chip must light on individually. If not, the LEDs are faulty.
2. Flexible printed circuit board( FPC).
FPC board is where LEDs will be put on. It utilizes layers of copper as conductor. With copper layers on both top and also lower sides, double side FPC board need to be made use of to product the best quality LED strip lights.
Single side FPC contains a lot less copper thus are less expensive than double side FPC. In order to save price, lots of manufacturers use single side FPC. Light strips with single side FPC will be too hot and their life-span will certainly be much shorter.
How to tell from the look of the LED strip light whether it uses double-sided or single sided FPC? Single sided FPC has only one side with circuits printed , the opposite side looks smooth and also distributed color. Double-sided FPC has actually printed circuits on both sides. So it can be so easy for you to see.
When you hold the LED strip light with two fingers, you will see that the double-sided FPC is thicker than single sided. The thicker the FPC board is, the far better the heat release function.
3. Manufacturing process.
You can inform if the manufacturing procedure is good by checking the LED soldering points. The soldering points of quality LED strip lights look full as well as shiny. Those on bad quality strips look shriveled and also boring. A lot of LEDs are set up and down on the strip. Straight plan is susceptible to issue of weak soldering or fake soldering, causing high ratio faulty products.
4. Authentic 3M double-sided adhesive tape.
Almost all of stick on LED light strips in the world carry on the back with double-sided tape, where the letters “3M” is printed. Sadly most of them are not real 3M, because, once again, they are less costly to gain cost benefit.
Fake 3M tape has the features that when applied, it delivers good adhesive bond from starting and the light strip remain well on application body. However as time passes, the tape will certainly end up being much less and also much less sticky. Some will fall off automatically.
On the other hand, authentic 3M double-sided tape, after applied, will certainly supply stronger as well as more powerful adhesiveness as time passes. If not peeled off intentionally, the light strip will never fall off by itself.
The 3M tape we make use of for our water resistant LED strip lights has a clear medium. And also at times we wish to get rid of light strips from application. Upon elimination of our waterproof light strips, there will certainly be no sticky residue left on the installation surface.
5. Water resistant material used.
For outdoor water-proof strips, the water resistant material utilized makes a distinction. Highest quality water-proof light strips use silicone water resistant products, which is non-toxic and also can be used to make bottle nipples for babies.
Silicone has high light transmittance as well as does not transform yellow-colored in the future. They have regularity of buildings over a wide temperature level range of -67 ° F to 392 ° F (-55 ° C to 200 ° C). So they function perfectly in super warm to very chilly locations, no too softening to loose, no crunchy, no fracture.
Bad quality water-proof strip lights utilize more affordable PU glue for water-proof material. PU adhesive is toxic and bad for interior usage, as well as it will certainly change to yellowish as well as become crunchy and also split after numerous months.
The manufacturing procedure with PU glue results in that the PU glue get in touches with the LED surface, which will certainly adjust the light color temperature. For a normal light strip of 6500K covered with PU adhesive waterproof material, the color temperature will certainly be adjusted up by about 1000K, turning into around 7500K-8000K.
How long do LED strip lights last?
Heat management decides how much time LED strip lights can last. Ideal LED strip lights last more than 50,000 hours, which is equal to 6 years of continuous usage. Heat is the major issue that triggers LEDs to quit working. Ideal LED strip lights utilize top quality materials, are created out of far better scientific design, as well as are made with well-controlled procedures. Hence, they attain far better hot controlling performance than their inferior counter products.
What Can LED Strip Lighting Do?
LED strip lights can do far more than you would certainly imagine. They have been becoming as the lighting resource of the largest series of applications. They are one of the most imaginative and versatile illumination for lights style experts. Correctly made and mounted LED strip lights can be best for ambient illumination, accent illumination, task illumination, as well as bias illumination.
Distinction amongst ambient lights, accent lighting, job illumination, as well as bias lights.
They are the expert terms for lighting layout and also application. It is not difficult to tell their distinction, due to the fact that although many people do not know these terms, they have currently applied the keynotes behind these terms in day-to-day life.
Ambient illumination. Ambient illumination is described as general lighting or mood illumination. It is the begin factor of base quantity light for an area. It is the general lighting that not just enables you safely move, however also sets the tone in the whole space.
Accent lights. Accent lighting is the lights that is concentrated on a tiny area or component of the room. Under counter LED strip is commonly a special style to highlight the area. Accent lighting is likewise made use of with the purpose to make the area standout. Accent illumination is frequently utilized for presenting creative items, photos, or trophies.
Task lighting. When you are working in the office, you require tasking lighting. It helps you to deal with on jobs by raising sharp and also emphasis degree in brain, as well as by lighting items or location in details. Task lights is frequently seen in such areas as home office workdesk and cooking area counter top. Under cabinet strip lighting can be a fine example of task lighting.
Bias illumination. Bias illumination is the backlight utilized on the behind of the Televisions, displays or screens. It places soft lights in the back area which is typically dark. Bias illumination is made with the purpose to improve the efficiency television displays, and also to alleviate visitor’s eyes.
With these illumination capabilities, LED strips have actually been made use of for household lighting, commercial lighting, building lighting, as well as industrial lights. Below are the prominent applications.
Under cupboard LED strip lights.
Our finest LED strip lights are exceptionally prominent for LED under closet strip lighting because of its low profile and also very easy installation. They are straight and also flat, very easy to conceal under cabinet or shelves, where minimal space is a challenge for other kind of lights.
LED strips for ceiling light.
